Girls trip to London

Happy Tuesday everyone! I hope your week is off to a good start. 
I'm just settling back to reality after a lovely weekend trip to London with the girls!

We pulled out all the stops to celebrate our fabulous friend Claire's 30th birthday, so I thought I'd share a little recap today.

We arrived bright and early on Friday morning and our first stop was Le Chalet at Selfridges for a spot of brunch. I had been there before Christmas and loved it, so I was delighted to get another visit in with the girls before it closes in March. Perched on the rooftop of Selfridges, the atmosphere was lovely - so warm and cosy and we enjoyed catching up over a delicious meal and a bottle of wine!

After a spot of shopping and an all important visit to MAC in search of 'Brave' (which we got - yay
!), we headed back to the hotel to get glammed up for dinner that night. We enjoyed some gorgeous tapas dishes and cocktails at the gorgeous Ham Yard Hotel in Soho. The decor here was just beautiful and the fairy lights outside made the night all the more magical.

Saturday morning started with a delicious brunch in Covent Garden followed by a stroll around the shops. It's such a beautiful area to browse around. The Kurt Geiger store in particular had the wow factor!

As London Fashion Week was on over the weekend, we couldn't not visit Somerset House! The atmosphere was buzzing and I could have spent the whole afternoon people watching and admiring the street style. I was giddy with excitement to get my photo under the London Fashion Week sign.


After more shopping, it was back to the hotel again to get ready for another night on the tiles. We had dinner and cocktails at Madison, St. Pauls. We absolutely loved this place! The views across the city were incredible and it had a really laid back, relaxed vibe. Not to mention the divine cocktails and desserts!


To round off our trip, we went along to Pret-a-Portea at the Berkeley on Sunday. I had found this via Instagram a few months ago and knew it would be the perfect treat for our fashionista birthday girl! I won't ramble on any more - the pictures speak for themselves! It was just gorgeous and I'd highly recommend it.



I managed to squeeze in a few purchases over the weekend too but I'll save that for another post :)

Hope you enjoyed my little round up. You just can't beat a weekend away with the girls!
